Remember the netbook? If you head to a warehouse club store, you can occasionally still spot them available for sale, but at least one research firm claims the end is nigh for the little notebooks that could(n't).
Few of us can actually claim to know what Apple will do this year, especially with the curveballs that the company continues to keep throwing. (Who could have seen that fourth-gen iPad coming so soon?) But one analyst believes they have cracked Cupertino's code.
While Google’s Android continues to dominate the smartphone market, manufacturers creating tablets with the same operating system are still fighting an uphill battle against Apple’s iPad -- including the once white-hot Amazon Kindle Fire.
Conducting research online has changed the way we peruse information, but it's not exactly conducive to multitasking when you're flipping between windows. Between the word processor and the page you're citing, sometimes things can get a little convoluted. Fortunately, the folks at Google Docs have come up with a nifty way to do all of your research in the same window that you're typing in.
Fact: There’s no such thing as too much storage. The more memory that a device has, the happier its owner will be. There is however, such a thing as paying too much for extra storage, and that’s why we’ve yet to see an iPad or an iPhone with a higher capacity than 64GB.
If you’re building a mobile device like a smartphone, tablet or even a laptop, flash storage, also known as a solid-state drive (SSD) is the way to go. As they contain no moving parts, they’re less likely to break down over time due to repetitive motion, and if the device they’re baked into gets dropped, there’s no risk of the kind of data loss that we associate with old school hard drives. Since there are no drive platters, there are no drive platters to damage. They’re also wicked fast compared to traditional hard drives.
